Topic: Webgrabber and css

Our shop uses the Webgrabber utility to produce pdf's directly from webpages. No one has been able to get the css support working even with the the IE rendering engine property set. We have had to resort to converting our css classes to inline html formatting to get our pdf's to render.

Everyone else gave up on this and I was tasked to have another look at the problem. Despite many references to support for css I have been unable to find anyone who says they have actually done it!

I have the 3.5.2 version with service pack 6 running on my XP development machine with a localhost IIS. When I set the engine to IE in my asp page my browser freezes and also locks out the Acrobat splash screen.

I have read all the posts on here around this issue, searched the web, pored over the activePDF site all to no avail. Can anyone throw any light onto this for us.

The documention that comes with 3.5 says that Webgrabber does not support css but the product spiel says it does.
